I'm looking for one like this! I'm contacting him asap!

Sorry, forgot to mention, I'm the LA area.

Thanks for all the responses so far!

Good luck in your search, Daniel. Also, while you're at it, you'll want to check out the various tape machine techs as well to keep the machines in top condition.

Are you kidding?? The A-800 is a total maintenance hog compared to an A827.

no we are not kidding.

if one chip in the A827 fails you are fukked. A800 is easy in comparison to repair.

That's total bull. Internet myth from that analog guy (forget the name of his site). Those eprom chips can be re-written. Just find a proper tech who has the gear.

Talk to anyone who went from an A800 to A827 and ask about downtime. And ask any tech what they would rather work on, an 800 or 827.

ok

I will ask some guys I know who worked for Studer Switzerland in the development/maintenace staff.

I wasn't even born when the A-800 was released

I remembered the sight - analog rules dot com.

PS, the techs who complained & advised me about this WERE from Studer.

o.p., I've bought two Studers and a couple of spare cards from seller 'corylinda' on ebay; he's an honest and straight-up good guy to deal with. I've referred other people to him and they've all reported good experiences as well.

I've also dealt with irico-canada on ebay with good results.

kats..

I really want to understand this problem. I contacted another guy.

he wrote me back:
if you have the binares for the firmware and someone who can rewrite the chips for a A-827 it's not a problem.

this is the internal studer "what chips were used" information.

in my opinion you are wrong from the technical point of view (but you mgiht be right from the reality point of view).

I have a Studer A810
1/4"
3.75, 7.5, 15, 30ips
dual bias recall
meter bridge / roll around rack.
great heads.
Audio sounds great passed through this Studer!

I might be willing to sell it, or trade it
Local pickup in Little Rock, this would be expensive to ship!
Let me know.

Contact Charlie Bolios at Vertigo Recording Services in North Hollywood California. He can re-write the eproms for you. No problems, that's his job - he's an audio tech.
